Clean & Go Green
Columbia University Facilities has partnered with Undergraduate Housing, Environmental Health & Safety, Environmental Stewardship, and Eco-Reps to help you. Twice a year, as part of our "Clean + Go Green" program, we will make dumpsters available across campus, at no cost to you, for the disposal of large unwanted items. You can also shred paper as well. Best of all, Facilities will properly separate your items for donation and recycle them. That way, when you clean, you "go green!"
You can help ensure that our "Clean + Go Green" program is a success--please spread the word! Should you have any questions about this event or need other facilities-related information, please contact the Facilities Services Center at 212-854-2222. We look forward to seeing you at Clean + Go Green!
